(bacterium)

 

 

Drying, freezing, sulphuric acid baths: when other microorganisms have long since been knocked out, mycobacteria survive.

Mycobacterium leprae is an aerobic, rod-shaped, Gram-positive bacterium in the Mycobacteriaceae family.

Infections with this bacterium lead to leprosy.

Transmission mainly occurs via droplets or particles in the air.
